Infrasonic keeps on serving the 4-trackers and here is another one. Meridian is making a return. It's now almost 3 years since his last release on Infrasonic which had big remixers as well as with this one. On the remix duties we have Thomas Datt, the (fast) rising star Suncatcher and the Digital Society boys, Med vs. Neil Bamford.

4. Med vs. Bamford Remix
Rough edged trance with neat stabs, trippy melodies and a lush and well padded breakdown. The mix has an overall 2004 feel to it in my opinion.
Thomas Datt Remix
Datt starts out with a heavy kick drum and some soft hi hats. At the same time a melody emerges in the background and suddenly an acid line falls in as well as some heavier highs. A breathing effect triggers the bassline and this is were it takes off. This mix has an overall nice consistency and a thick and neat production quality to it. Not as upbeat as his earlier productions but certainly step up in quality from the original mix.
Suncatcher usually goes for the 9 minute mixes (or so I have observed lately) but this one is around 6 minutes. The vocal snippets are much brighter and plays a bigger role in this mix and the bassline has an electro feel. While I'm not fully convinced by the bassline I do feel completely satisfied when introduced to his breakdown. Lovely combination of melodies and a great way to build up a perfect mood.
Med vs. Neil Bamford Remix
As expected this mix is much more of an energetic affair. A quick build-up, fast moving melodies and glitch effects to spice it up and move things forward.
